GTO vs Omega 8 vs Peak 2 vs Venus 2 review…

Interesting review here of these gliders by Lebanese pilot Ziad Bassil… No prizes for guessing which wing he prefers…! Clearly out and out performance isn’t everything, but as Ziad says “Comparisons are only to get an idea what the glider will be and feel like. Some like it soft on the brakes, others find it too jumpy… But the best glider is the one that each individual pilot will have the most fun with. For some it could be the glider that out-climb or out-glide your club mates…. But for most, it is the one that will give you a smile and a satisfying happy feeling immediately after you land. That’s the glider you must choose. So there is no best glider rather than best feeling for a glider.
Fly SAFE, Ziad
